Remarks & Notes 
A museum piece. Red signals barely visible against the red Eastern Washington sky. For the engineer of BNSF 7531, reds, blues, and blacks are broken from the light of an oncoming manifest well over a minute and mile ago. Emerging out of the single track line, the manifest meets, passes 7531, and rolls onto the double steel to work north over Providence Hill. The double track from here over Providence Hill extends for nearly ten miles with one universal crossover at Beatrice. As the unknown manifest rolls north, along the '31s grain, its headlight becomes a little brighter and brighter against the black and blue hills, steel roofs, and lone distributed power. In addition, this photograph was selected as one of 6 winning photographs in the world-wide Powerhouse Trainspotting competition.

An ongoing/growing album of photos that IMHO reveal the awesome, but seldom seen beauty of railroads at sundown or in the light of sunrise. From dusk to dawn, lights are on! (And I continue to find new "Lights In The Night"!)
